Help kids with clubfoot at your next
Elevation Church Watch Party
Elevation Church is teaming up with Hope Walks to provide a fun and unique way to help a child with clubfoot – a very treatable birth defect.
Paint a brace used in the treatment process and brighten the world of a child born with clubfoot. You’ll have fun while helping a child take his or her first steps on straight feet and sharing God’s love with their family.
What is a Brace-painting party?
Hope Walks provides free treatment for kids born with clubfoot in Latin America and Africa.
This common birth defect is completely treatable. We use the gold-standard, minimally invasive Ponseti method of casts and braces (Yes! The ones you will be painting).
- Each party box includes leathers to paint.
- You send them back to Hope Walks, and they’ll take care of the rest. They even pay the return postage.
If you provide your contact information, Hope Walks will send you a photo of your leather turned into a brace from Africa.
It’s super easy
Order Your Party Box
Have fun & Transform Lives
Hope Walks will send you a photo when your leather is turned into a life-transforming brace and is ready to be given to a child in need, like one of the cuties below. Brace painting is a fun activity where you can literally see the difference you are making!
Once you complete the order form, Hope Walks will mail your leathers. They also include a return mailing label. Just drop your painted leathers in the box, use the prepaid mail sticker and send it back to Hope Walks.
Clubfoot is a common, yet treatable, birth defect. Using a process of casts and braces (this is where you come in), clubfoot can be easily corrected in infants. This is known as the Ponseti method, the worldwide gold-standard. Once the casts have straightened the feet in a few weeks or months, the braces are used to maintain the foot correction until the child is about five years old.
What are you waiting for?
At Hope Walks, we know you have a heart for kids in need but don’t always know where to begin. If you’re looking for a unique and easy way to help kids, the brace-painting party boxes offer you and your friends a fun way to do just that.
You don’t need to be the next Rembrandt or Picasso to paint a brace. Simple is best — polka dots, strips, stars. Your efforts will literally brighten a child’s future. If you provide your contact information, Hope Walks will share a photo of your painted leather once it is turned into a brace in Africa. All you need to do is order a brace-painting party box, invite some friends and have fun while transforming the life of a child.
Here’s what one painter said after receiving a photo of her leather turned into a brace.
“Oh my goodness! What a wonderful surprise to see in my inbox. Thanks so much for sharing!!”

Our dirty little secret…
Does a brace really need to be painted? No, it will work just fine all black or brown and boring. But as you can imagine, kids often complain about wearing these braces while they sleep.
A fun-looking and colorful brace can help a child want to wear it. The Hope Walks program manager in Zambia shared that one little boy was in tears when he grew out of his painted brace and had to move up to the next size that wasn’t available in a painted version.
Your painted braces encourage moms to return to the clinic when their child outgrows their current boots.
Imagine the gratitude of a clubfoot mom or dad who will have fewer struggles getting their child to wear a brace. This is more than just an art project. It is a device that is a vital part of the healing process.
